Right now I am working on an AMT '60 Skyliner. I have painted it with the Testors Boyds purple and have done some foiling of the trim. I may keep the bottlecaps on it,or use some Torque Thrust wheels on it.

LOL! I need a desk like that. I work at the bench in my cellar and stand up all day doing it. Maybe I'll take the desk in the other corner and move it nearby.

If you look real hard on the shelf on the right there is a Hubley 1962 Ford station wagon (white plastic 1/24). I also have a Hubley 1960 Ford wagon. Both are 4-door models.

I'm also into hot rods at the moment and right now I'm doing a 32 Roadster Hiboy in a kind of semi retro style with a 392 Hemi from the Revell 41 Willys and wheels from the Monogram Li'l Coffin, but progress has been very slow lately.

Those L'il coffin wheels and tires are the bee's knees, daddio! They are great representations of first gereration American Racing Magnesium Torq Thrusts along with wide white-wall slicks. One of the models in the picture is the Monogram '31 Model A 5 window coupe with a chopped top, the three carbed flathead from the Monogram '40 Ford pickup and those L'il Coffin wheels and tires. The paint is Black Suede (primer). Unfortuantely I can't keep it. I'm building it for a friend.
